What is Employment Law?

Employment law encompasses all areas of the employer/employee relationship except the negotiation process covered by labor law and collective bargaining. Employment law exists to regulate the relationship between businesses and their employees. If a business is consistent and complies with employment law, hiring processes, dismissal processes and their workplace as a whole, are fair for every individual.
